We believe in the power of storytelling and its ability to connect people and communities. The Vietnamese Boat People Journeys initiative provides space where families and individuals can share stories and histories, as well as contribute photos, artifacts, and memories of their diaspora journeys from Vietnam. We hope it encourages intergenerational dialogue and builds more awareness of the lived experiences of the Vietnamese community from all over the world. We invite you to explore the stories and contribute your own to this digital collective.

“I'm really excited and I can feel I'm going through a lot while documenting this story and processing it all. I'm so thankful for the community you and the team have created. The fact that it's so accessible and can reach people all over the world is fantastic!”
